Thanks for visiting our site.  We are a small independent bookstore located on Lopez Island in Northwest Washington owned by Bill Evans and Diane Pagel.  Our specialty is Rare and Out of print Border Collie, Sheepdog, Herding and Sheep books.

How we Came to Be

One day I was talking to Diane about the on-line business she had started selling rare dog books on-line.  Diane was ready to expand and I was looking for a for a business I could do on Lopez Island.  Thus Dogdazes was born.  We joined our efforts and knowledge to start  Diane is the self appointed "bigwig" and hunts the world for our rare book inventory and I pretty much take care of the rest.

 Dogdazes has expanded their bookstore to include herding, sheepdog, sheep, brumbies (Horse), Footrot Flats and Patsey Gray books.

In the future we plan to expand our new books selection and add some specialty items.  If you are searching for a certain book and it is not listed on your site, drop us a line and we will search for the book for you at no extra charge.  We also purchase books.

Who we Are

Diane loves Border Collies and trials at the ISDS level.  She has two Border Collies that she runs in the ProNovice level, "Tess" and "Libbi".  She recently moved to a 10 ac farm where she bought sheep to further her knowledge.  On the side, she has a real job to support her trialing habit.  She has a personal website at

Bill, Training and trialing Border Collies has been my passion since 1992 and I  have been trialing at the Open Level since 1995.  I have trialed extensively across the United States and have attended the National Finals every year since 1995.  

I currently have four Dogs.  Bob & Lucy are my two open Trial Dogs (and farm dogs), Craig is 5th Place & Best Outwork Awards - 1997 National Finals, Klamath Falls, OR(328891 bytes)running in Pro-Novice and I have nice puppy named Nan.

I recently moved to Lopez Island  to train dogs and raise sheep full time.  This is a dream come true for  me as I now have the facilities to train dogs and the sheep to provide them with practical experience.  In addition to training my own dogs, I also give lessons on Lopez Island, give clinics across the country and judge sheep dog trials.  My personal web site address is
